Bamboo. [a photo collection]

Meow. I’m sure you must have heard my human talk about me. My name is Bamboo. I think I come up in her everyday conversation (she really loves me, I am the center of her universe, so… Makes sense). Together, we live happily in beautiful, coastal British Columbia. I am currently 2 and a half years old! I am so adorable, check me out: 😛

Well... I've got better photos (see below!)
Well… I’ve got better photos, I swear (see below!)

I want to share with you all the things I enjoy! Life as a cat is full of mystery, and often times I am so busy chasing invisible critters, and getting pet, and self grooming, and eating, and napping, and staring out the window… Have I mentioned I really like ear scratches? Well I really like them. I deserve a lot of ear scratches. Yeah, ear scratches are the best… 

Before I get distracted (there are lots around the house that can distract a cat, let me tell you that!) I must share with you a little bit of my history with my human…:

Everyday is Caturday.
Everyday is Caturday.

It was Spring of 2013. I was 9.5 weeks old, when my human first stepped in the house where I was born. I was scurrying around, climbing up the curtains with my sibling—it was just down to me and my sister (out of 4 of us, the other two—my brothers—were already adopted to new forever homes). Rumor has it that my human originally wanted to pick up the calico kitten—my sister (I think she just wasn’t aware how cute I was)… But my, am I glad she changed her mind when she saw my furry face of awesome! I am glad it all happened the way it did; my human wanted the calico but turns out, my sister had already been ‘claimed’ by another family on their way to meet her, so my human was sad. Then she saw me, a black and grey tabby kitten who looked identical to my (biological cat) mommy. My human heard my momma cat’s owners tell her that I was the last remaining adoptable kitten; I was really energetic and healthy, but because of my very “normal” coat, I was “less desirable” than my siblings (a calico, a tuxedo, and a grey tuxedo). My human fell in love with me, though. She decided every cat of any coat and colour deserves love and snuggles, and there was nothing wrong with my tabbiness! She thought I was adorable, and though she originally wanted a girl kitty, on April 10th, 2013, I came home with her instead. What a twist of fate! But as they say… The best things happen to those who wait. I am awarded with a fantastic human mommy now, because I was the Patient One. 🙂

Though I was not officially adopted from an SPCA or shelter, I would say that my human had ‘rescued’ me. My siblings and I were an accident and we were too much for my (cat) mommy’s owner, who is an older gentleman and doesn’t have time for kitten shenanigans. We were set up for adoption, and it was the last days before he would had to have brought us to a shelter. Thank goodness for my human to my rescue! Since the day I came home with my human, I’ve been fed premium food, a brand called Nutrience. I threw up Whiskas treats in the car on the first ride home, so now my human gets treats from my vet instead (haha, I am a high maintenance one, but a healthy cat is a happy cat!) Recently, I developed some small crystals in my urine, and it hurt a lot! After some tests at the vet, my human put me on a prescription diet by Science Diet, called C/D for urinary health. First kibbles, but I think I’ve found my most favourite: Science Diet C/D in Ocean Fish, canned food. Mm-mm, good! And now, no more crystals, plus my human says my coat is shinny and soft like a rabbit! …Wait, where’s the rabbit? I am also fixed, tattooed (like my human mommy), and I am microchipped. All fabulous precautions should I get lost! Even though I’m an indoor cat, but better safe than sorry—my human is a practical and a caring individual. And now… Well here I am. 😀

My human loves to capture my silly moments… I will share with you a little ‘photo album’ (some which my human has already blogged about previously).

  1. OH.MY.ACTUAL GOODNESS. This post is adorable and so, so touching. I am in love with this story and how absolutely charming Bamboo is! I am so glad to see you looked past his “average colors” – tabbies for the win! He is such a sweetie pie. He is definitely lucky to have such a wonderful human; no one would be a better human momma to Bambs than you! That is a fact. But you also got lucky with him, he is an amazing kitty.
    I love this. I love Bamboo. I love you. End of story.
